- A lot of netizens aren’t happy with Julia Barretto’s tirade against Bea Alonzo
- She failed to answer her relationship with Gerald Anderson
- Julia’s attempts to call Bea a bully backfires on her.
After two weeks of keeping silent, Julia Barretto finally addressed on Tuesday (August 6) accusations that she was involved in the breakup of Bea Alonzo and Gerald Anderson.
Julia Barretto made her statement on Instagram, posting an old photo of herself as a child with an adult Alonzo which had been circulating online in the wake of the controversy.
Julia defended herself from being painted as the third party. “Secondly, I believe Gerald has already made it clear that a third party was not the cause of their breakup. I would like to disassociate myself from the breakup of Bea and Gerald. Their issues are entirely their own. However, since I was brought into this mess without a choice, this is what I have to say. Your heartbreak should have been a private matter, but you have selfishly turned it into something of national concern.”
She also clarified the issue that she had cheated on her former boyfriend Joshua Garcia with Anderson. “I was attacked for two issues: 1. I cheated on my boyfriend. 2. I was the cause of another relationship’s breakup. Let’s be clear: Josh and I had broken up four months ago. We have publicly admitted it together and we have cleared that there was no third party involved. From now on, anything I do in my private and love life is not considered as cheating, and is none of anyone’s business,” she explained.
But this long statement didn’t convince the netizens especially since her aunt Gretchen Barretto is claiming that it was written by someone else, and not Julia.

Julia Barretto saying that Bea should've handled her heartbreak in a private matter. Wasn't she the one that went to Boy Abunda's talk show? "Tito Boy, I know my worth. I know what he did and blah blah." And sis if my bf was cheating on me, I'd let the world know too lol.

Julia Barretto if you would check carefully, Bea Alonzo's post was between him and Gerald Anderson… That she did not mention you was simply because you are not part of the equation. That you responded in such a manner speaks well of the kind of person you are tsk

Bakit si Bea lang ang target ng IG post niya? Dahil ni-like ni Bea ‘yung posts relating Julia to Gerald?
Eh Gerald never denied dating Julia even when he already said a lot about his relationship w/ Bea, ‘di ba?

If Julia thinks this will turn the public’s opinion around… she’s in for another surprise. She’s the one who’s bullying Bea with her post and downright downplaying her pain.
Shame on Gerald for failing to man up, but double shame on Julia for being this arrogant & insensitive pic.twitter.com/tze5ueLB4L

Julia's cringe worthy post is not "Bravery" it's "Clearing my name and putting the blame on someone" and that's the f*cking tea. 💁🍵 pic.twitter.com/Q0M92iWyQU

My opinion about this matter: nakakaloka na lalake ang pinag aawayan nila. Bea and Julia are both very beautiful and talented, tapos mag-aaway lang dahil sa lalakeng cheater? Yikes. They both deserve better.

So let me get this straight. Julia's dating Gerald who apparently didn't end his relationship with Bea properly, and now we're pitting Julia and Bea against each other? Lol parang victims naman silang dalawa.

Julia Barretto just proved that shes inconsiderate of Bea's feelings by trying to make herself the victim and scrutinizing Bea's reaction to what she found out. She really tried to clean her reputation up by bringing someone else's down when she could've just cleared the air.

sorry ah but did Bea ever like a photo that said something along the lines of "Julia Baretto is terrible, go and attack her"???? sa alam ko she's throwing shade at her ex, but if natamaan ka sa sinasabi niya, doesn't that mean an admission that you did something wrong to her??? https://t.co/t4LeOQuI1D

Instead of just airing her side of the story, Julia attacked Bea directly. The young actress took an aggressive stance against Bea who’s still obviously hurting. If she had been hoping to turn the tide of hate from herself towards Bea instead, it would appear to have failed since even more netizens are reacting negatively towards Julia.
While many people believe that they’re both victims, Julia might have given her haters more ammunition to attack her with.
